System Requirements Specifications (SyRS) The role of a BA can involve analysing the business needs of a client in order to help in identifying business problems and propose solutions The proposed solution can also be in the form of a database on top of which developers can then develop business applications It is therefore of utmost importance for a BBIT graduate to have SyRS skills A distinction should be made between an SyRS (what the system must do) and a Statement of Work (how to develop the system). This is a challenge for many BAs. Enterprise User Requirements Specification Advanced Database Systems Slide 20 of 39

System Requirements Specifications (SyRS) Avoid the terrible misconception of IT as only a “ reactive function of business; whereby clients go to IT only when they have a problem that they need fixed IT should be more of a “ proactive ” function; one that solves problems which clients did not even know they had However, refrain from “ ” a problem to appear where there is none at all. You must conduct thorough analysis in order to identify REAL business problems. Enterprise User Requirements Specification Advanced Database Systems Slide 21 of 39

System Requirements Specifications (SyRS) The collection of requirements should have the following properties: Unique set : Each requirement should be stated only once Normalized : Requirements should not overlap each other, i.e. a requirement should not refer to other requirements Complete : Any SyRS should capture all the requirements defined by the client Bounded : The boundaries, scope, and context for the set of requirements should be identified Modifiable : The SyRS should be modifiable. Having requirements that overlap make it more difficult to modify.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
